Why You Should Be Happy With Tolbert Signing

Smitty and Lafell out wide, Gettis in the slot, Olsen at tight end, stew/dlo with Tolbert in the back. Legit run or pass package in any situation. I won't be surprised to see this package more than we saw two tight end last year. Tolbert gives us an extra receiving option, plus a lead blocker, plus adds Gettis' speed to the field, which should either have the benefit of spreading the defense, or leaving big holes in the secondary.

This wasn't just insurance on jstew, or a set up for a trade. The staff has legitimately upgraded our potent offense for proverbial pennies on the dollar, while probably maximizing the potential already on the roster.

How is this bad? It just isn't.

Just want to point out, that unless one of them is the QB, that would be too many players on the field.

Dlo and stew counted as one spot, as notated by the backslash(/). Thanks for helping out though!

Offensive packages are a combination of 5 recievers/backs/TE's, yours included 6

I am pretty excited about him signing with us.

But would like to see us concentrate more on defense, unless he can play some linebacker too, im sure he can do better then Sean and Conner lol.

Still too many bro. 3 WR's, 1 TE, 2 RB's, 5 OL, + 1 QB.

You'd have to leave Olsen out for three wide sets, or run two wides with 1 TE in your scenario.

I just know we will have a fresh RB out there at all times. That will be key b/c they all win run hard everytime they get it and compete with one another.

Again, dont see why people hate this signing. He came cheap and hes dang good. If Stewart demands too much money, we have a great option in Tolbert to fall back on.

Just enjoy the show!

We should be happy because the guy took $4MM less because he wanted to play here so much. That's the kind of players I want on this team.
